An open letter


Narcissism / Wednesday, May 3rd, 2006

Dear Soulmate,

It’s probably synchronicity that I am listening to Go West singing ‘I’ll get over you..” but who are they fooling. There are some people you just cant get over. I am pretty sure that soulmates are on that list. I think the same way, I think that it’s over and I no longer need to think about you or worry about how to be a part of your life and just get on with my life. But truly, even though I might speak with you only once a year, the happiness I hear is like a mirror reflecting the joy that I feel myself and as two mirrors tend to, it ends up with an infinity of reflected images which is truly a reflection of the joy that your voice brings to my heart. And I know you feel the same too.

There is no point in questioning how it is, that two people who feel this way, are so near and yet so far away from each other, maybe we were not ready – or maybe this is the lesson we chose for this lifetime. But it’s a tough lesson, and as I repeatedly open my heart – telling my love to fly away, it just sits there and aches once in a while, blooms at other times and brings tears of happiness or joy to my eyes, gives me rushes.

but I am glad that I met you, and I am glad that I know you, and I am glad for every little opportunity I have had to spend time with you and know you – although we knew each other from the first time our eyes met, be that as it may. I thank you.

And I thank this universe for making you.

until next time, or the next birth πŸ™‚

keep smiling,

yours always,
St

  5. Ouch!

    I know where you’re at. I went through it myself. Getting out wasn’t easy but it worked out in the end (as you can see). Someone else eventually came along and I ended up marrying her and saying goodbye to the past. But the in between was definitely not a picnic.

  7. Forget soulmates. Your problem right now is you don’t have solemates to play football with. Where’s your sense of priorities?

  8. @ anonymous – it’s like having tasted nectar once and nothing else is as sweet, though it’s been a long time now..not going through a heartbreak, if anything – the reverse, just reflecting πŸ™‚ on recent conversations..i have tried to let go…and this is where i am at

    @ Kanishka – i am not trying to get out or something, its not like a messy break up or anything – its just a reflection on the past and what might have been but for the pigheadedness of 2 people..

    @ r – that’s going to be corrected soon, and you know it! St Andrew/St Theresa’s or whatever colleges in Bandra – here i come!
